Beginner’s Guide
If you’re brand new to podcasts, you can listen to them in a few ways. iTunes users can use the native app (the one that was already loaded on your Apple device when you purchased it), or any other app that you like. Casey uses an app called Overcast, a free app that you can find by searching the app store in iTunes.

Android users have other options. Staci uses Pocket Casts, a free app you can find by searching the Play Store on your Andriod device. Google Play also added Podcasts to their main menu, and you can subscribe and listen right in the Google Play app.

You can also visit the VeryPink website each week and click the “Podcast” link at the top of the page to listen to it here (see the player above).

To subscribe to the VeryPink Podcast, search for it in your app, and once you locate it, click “subscribe”. The app will then add every new episode to your “feed”, the list of new episodes for podcasts you subscribe to.
